Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We – the Coordinators – are proud to announce the date and agenda for the ILAS Conference. Rinaldi e Associati have kindly offered to host this special Conference in
on Thursday 25 January 2018 and
Friday 26 January 2018.
The special date in January marks the start of a new ILAS. We are extremely proud of what was achieved in the past, in particular the excellent relationships, both businesswise and personally amongst the members but we think it may be the right time for giving a boost.
To ensure transparency of our organization we propose to move from the current ILAS Ltd. corporate structure to a more member-orientated association. Details will be illustrated in the frame of the January Conference. Please note that every member firm participating in this Conference has the historic opportunity to become a founding member of new ILAS!
The Conference will take place at the NH Collection President of Milan.
We attach a copy of each of the following:
We will send you soon also an information sheet prepared by Andrea Lazzaretti of Rinaldi e Associati, containing details of the conference venue, restaurants and hotels.
As in previous conferences, there will be a single fee of 250.00 EUR per person payable to ILAS for attending the conference. Where ILAS members book more than one person to attend the conference, the fee payable for each attendee will be 225.00 EUR. The attendance fee will include dinner on Thursday, 25 January 2018, and attendance at the conference, coffee breaks during the conference, lunch and dinner on Friday, 26 January 2018.
There will be an early bird discount of 10 % of the single attendance fee of 250.00 EUR in relation to any booking made prior to 31 December 2017 provided that payment is also received in full by that date.
By way of example, an ILAS member who sends 3 delegates to the conference will have to pay a total of 675.00 EUR (being three times 225.00 EUR). If that ILAS member makes their booking and pays the conference fee until Monday, 31 December 2017, then they will receive a discount of 10 % of the single attendance fee of 250.00 EUR per attendee (in the example above this would be three times 25.00 EUR) and will only have to pay a total of 600.00 EUR.
Where any member cancels a booking prior to 31 December 2017, 50 % of the relevant attendance fee will be payable. Where any member cancels a booking after 31 December 2017, the whole of the relevant attendance fee will remain payable. Where members wish to change any attending delegate, they should notify us via e-mail.
The last day for booking and paying for your attendance at the conference will be Friday, 12 January 2018.
Payments have to be made directly to Rinaldi e Associati according to the details that will be provided in an information sheet that will be circulated soon.
Payments should be made by bank transfer, where possible. If you wish to pay by cheque, please email us in advance.
As usual, delegates will be responsible for booking their own accommodation for the Conference.
The hosts will have an arrangement with NH Collection President of Milan.
The enclosed conference program may be subject to change. It is planned that every founding member of new ILAS gets 10 minutes to present the firms, area of practice, structure of client base etc.
We should be grateful if you would confirm your attendance at the conference as early as possible.
This will surely be a special conference because we are planning to establish a new association together with all of you. As in the past, also the new association will be keen to recruit active, good quality new members, even founding members. With this in mind, we ask all of you to think about potential members who may be interested in participating as observers in Milan or even as founding members of the new association. Please contact us directly if you have proposals.
Every change is an opportunity!
We are looking forward to hearing from you and to meeting you again in Milan.
